If you are suffering from chronic heel pain or Achilles tendon pain, shockwave therapy may be indicated for you. Shockwave therapy is the latest form of treatment modality to help get rid of unbearable foot pain that is limiting you from enjoying your day to day activities.
Plantar heel pain commonly known as plantar fasciopathy often present with unbearable pain with first step in the morning or after sitting down for a prolonged period of time and standing back up again. This pain can occur due to overuse of the plantar fascia (soft tissue band), which results in pain at its origin on the heel bone.
